When training, ensure you come prepared with all the items necessary to Shape your dog’s behavior. The basic items include:
- Rewards (treats or toys)
Note: If you do not have rewards for your dog, they will have very little incentive to follow your instruction, especially when you challenge them with difficult commands.
- A playful attitude!
When you bring these 5 items into every training moment, you will be fully prepared to effectively Shape your dog’s behaviors towards responsiveness!
